    I believe I read somewhere, not so long ago, that a body could clean (disinfect) boots and waders with vinegar, rather than bleach, with less wear and tear on the gear? Am I in phantasy (OMJ sez fantasy) land?

    Fixed it for you. Learn to spell you old bastard.

    The trouble with old minds is that they can remember what fishing was like 40 years ago. This shit they call fishing now doesn't hold a candle to what it was like 40 years ago.

    Jim, I can't remember where I left my speling bok. Heck, sometimes I can't remembert where I left me.

    White Vinegar it is. Thanks fellows. Don't want the little darlings to get sick or somethin.

    Guess maybe I shouldn't crap in the river either....

    Oh I don't know, Charlie. This old girl didn't care where she took a sh-t.

    The Westslopes grow big here. This one took my custom moose turd pattern... just downstream a bit from the moose hatch.

    Reminds me of the old-timer saying "Sh**, my memory's gettin' so bad I don't know if I found a rope or lost my horse!"

    Yeah, but my mind is so far gone that, a good hour after surfing and changing out of my wetsuit the other day, I glanced down and suddenly noticed that I'd been walking around for the last hour with my fly unzipped.

    I took a drive up into the hills today to search for new water. I was up on Bloody Dick Creek. I was surprised as to how much water this little creek has in it. It is still flowing like there is no tomorrow. Found that the upper end has mucho beaver ponds up in there.. Just didn't feel like fishing today. I guess that I wasn't in the mood to put on bug juice today. Next time up there I'm dragging my ATV along.

    Bloody Dick Creek? Sometimes you have to wonder where they come up with creek names. Makes you think that historically something really bad went down there.

    Olive Bugger...this thread has gone awry....to answer your question, you can use vinegar but it must be barrel aged balsamic vinegar to do the job.....PS-the felt soles are very nummy with a little olive oil!
